AIRCRAFT SERVICING

3.3 EXTERNAL POWER The DC and ACW electrical distribution system can be supplied from ground power sources, connected via the separate External Power receptacles which are located on the lower right side of the fuselage, just aft of the nose gear.

The specification of the DC GPU for ATR 42 requires the ground unit to be able to provide a steady current of 300 to 400 Amp under 28 volts to insure correct functioning of all electrical services prior to startup. For engine start, the GPU must be able to provide ADDITIONNAL STARTER CURRENT of 1000Amp while keeping more than 12 volts (ie 16 KW instantaneous power). CAUTION : If DC EXT PWR voltage on maintenance panel still shows less than 26 v despite the full load load shedding, the GPU MUST BE CONSIDERED AS COMPLETELY UNUSABLE. If DC EXT PWR voltage on maintenance panel is above 26 v, the DC GPU may be used to maintain aircraft batteries charge whilst using all other ground services normally (cargo door, refueling, cabin lighting, etc) WARNINGS : Do not disconnect external power while the GPU is supplying power to the aircraft. Failure to obey this may cause serious burn injuries and blindness to personnel, and severe damage to the external power receptacle and GPU power cable connector. If the external power earth grounded neutral is open, the aircraft will have an electrical potential above earth ground, which may cause an electric shock with possible serious injuries to personnel touching the aircraft. If an electric arc is observed when touching the aircraft, make sure that all personnel are kept clear of the aircraft and contact maintenance, or the commander immediately.

CAUTIONS : When using a mobile GPU, check voltage and frequency to be within limits. Voltage below or above specified limits may cause damage to aircraft electrical equipment. A mobile GPU must never be left connected to a tractor when the GPU power cable is connected to an aircraft. This to avoid damage to the GPU and/or the aircraft if the tractor is moved. When using a combustion engine driven GPU, make sure a hand fire extinguisher of suitable size and type is mounted externally on the GPU, or is available in close vicinity to the GPU. The fire extinguisher shall be sealed and date labeled. This is an illustration of the AC External Power receptacle panel

ATR 42-300 AIRCRAFT HANDLING MANUAL


LOADING

4.6 LOADING PRECAUTIONS The ATR 42-300 has a nose heavy tendency. Because of this, no tail stand is provided for this aircraft. For the ATR 42-300 to tip on its tail during ground loading, the aircraft would have to reach 63% MAC. To protect it from tip up, stations 17319 and 19557 (compartment F), must be loaded last and completely unloaded first during any loading/unloading operation. For empty ferry flights and/or light loaded flights, ballast weights will be needed to balance the aircraft. Freight shall never be loaded above the water mark or red line painted in the cargo compartment of the ATR. This water mark is located at 64 inches above the floor and provides adequate clearance for the smoke detectors and lights to function. It is prohibited to carry freight between the forward 9G crash net and the cockpit partition. Cargo of a piercing or penetrating nature must be loaded at least 4 feet aft of compressible cargo (density lower than 15.6 lb/cu. ft) to prevent penetration through the crash nets. This precaution must be exercised for each crash net used in the loading process 4.7 RESTRAINT REQUIREMENTS ATR 42-300 cargo must be restrained to prevent for the following ULTIMATE directional loads:

Direction Forward Up Side (Left/Right)
